Category Archives: Wil Russell Interviews

John Lundberg, Wil Russell, and Rod Dickinson interviewed in 1997, for the Croppies documentary. These sequences later appeared in their entirety in Matthew Williams’ Circlemakers documentary (from where they are taken here). It’s good to see people talk with intelligence and insight on circle making. Don’t watch Circlemaker TV; watch these instead.


Our favourite crop circle documentary, made in 1997 and featuring an all-star croppie cast of researchers and circlemakers including Andy Thomas, Busty Taylor, Chad Deetken, Colin Andrews, Doug Bower, Ed Sherwood, John Lundberg, John Sayer, Julian Richardson, Lucy Pringle, Nick Nicholson, Peter Sorensen, Polly Carson, Reg Presley, Rob Irving, Rod Dickinson, Ron Russell, Stuart Dike, Wil Russell, amongst others. Recommended viewing.

Ancient Aliens – Circles From The Sky

Somewhat bland and sensationalist “are crop circles made by aliens?” documentary. Charles Mallett, Linda Moulton Howe, Eltjo Haselhoff, Nancy Talbot, Gary King, and sundry ufologists provide the research perspective. Rob irving, John Lundberg, and Wil Russell recreate the May 1 2005 Alton Priors circle for the cameras.
